First Quarter 2023 Financial Results:
- Revenue for the three months ended March 31, 2023 was $3.8 million, up 56% from $2.4 million in the first quarter of 2022. The year-over-year revenue growth was driven primarily by an increase in the Company’s fleet and higher daily rental rates on newer and high-demand cars.
- Gross profit, excluding vehicle depreciation, for the three months ended March 31, 2023 was $1.6 million or 42%, up from $612 thousand or 42% in 2022 due to expense controls and operating efficiencies with the larger fleet of vehicles
- General and Administrative expenses were $3.2 million for the three months ended March 31, 2023, up from $1.5 million in the first quarter of 2022 primarily due to $1.2 million of non-recurring legal and settlement expenses related to the Bellridge Capital lawsuit.
- Net loss totaled $3.1 million for the three months ended March 31, 2023, compared to the net loss of $1.5 million in the first quarter of 2022. The larger loss was attributable to the legal and settlement costs and also higher interest expenses.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures
